This dress has NEVER BEEN WORN. It is a custom made design based on a Jim Hjelm design.
The first picture is of the Jim Hjelm dress in white which inspired my custom dress; the second picture is MY ACTUAL DRESS in ivory lace over a champagne underlay.
I originally bought a $2,000 dollar dress in a boutique and later regretted the price. So I had this similar custom dress made by a very reputable company located in Missouri who also does work online. I was worried at the risk I was taking in having a dress made for me by people I had never met online. However, when it came in I was extremely pleased with the results. The quality is fabulous; it far exceeded my expectations, it was definitely worth the price and more.
The only reason I am selling it now is because my mother later offered to help pay for the $2,000 dress I fell in love with originally. So I still believe this is a beautiful dress, and there is nothing wrong with it; I just changed my mind.
The dress is therefore NEVER WORN and NEVER ALTERED.
The original maker is a very reputable seller on Etsy; I can give you the exact link to check out the listing if you contact me privately. She has hundreds of positive feedback comments, and not a single negative one, which shows the quality of her creations. This dress is one of her most popular creations but I am offering to sell it for almost 25% off even though I never wore it. This is a great deal if you were thinking of getting a quality custom replica done of a Jim Hjelm dress, as you will save a bit of money. Even what I paid was a steal!
The dress is a very beautiful ivory lace over a champagne overlay. It is strapless with a sweetheart neckline. There is very light boning in the bodice which helps to pull in your figure in a flattering way but it is not at all constricting or pokey like some other dresses. There is an elastic band inside which holds the dress up at your natural waist, which gives it a VERY secure feel compared to other strapless dresses I’ve tried.
The cut is a narrow A-line with a delicate 10 inch train. The back dips into a low V and there is a row of covered buttons that match the lace and underlay. The dress includes a champagne sash that is separate so you can choose to use it or not.
This dress is light and yet more structured than other all-lace dresses I tried on, which gives it a very secure feel and makes your figure look great without weighing you down.
There are no tears, stains, holes, or any other imperfections. It’s straight from the manufacturer! It’s just been hanging in a garment bag in my closet for a little over a month.
It has not been altered; however, it was made to fit my height. It would probably work for a bride about 5’6″ or shorter with shoes, but message me if you want an exact measurement to make sure it will work for you.
